The Indian Financial System Code is a unique 11 character if it eases online banking, code given to a lender's branch. An IFSC such as HDFC0000485 is made up of three parts-the first four alphabetic characters recognize the bank's title; the fifth character is a'0' maintained as a buffer for future expansion and the last six characters are the ones which represent the lender's branch's address and therefore are usually numerical but may be alphabetical too.
